High speed RS232 for PIC

Together with WREG loading, it takes W*4+4 cycles and has limit of 1028 IC and precision of 4 IC. We may enhance its precision with additional entries:

RS_DELAY3WC
     nop
RS_DELAY2WC
     nop
RS_DELAY1WC
     nop
RS_DELAY0WC
     ...

movlw n/4
call RS_DELAY<n&3>WC

To provide RS_bodySEND macro with proper delay routines we may add code to RS_delay macro that will collect all needed entries by setting a flag in a constant and define RS_delays macro that will examine this constant and generate only needed delay routines and their entries, saving code space. With all these tricks, application code will look like this:
#define CLOCK .4000000
RS_SEND225K
     RS_bodySEND .230400, .8, PORTA, 1, 0
     return  
     RS_delays

Simulating waves

It is time to see if these routines will work at all. For this purpose I have created a unit test application that, depending on selection, outputs data with baud rates 57600, 115200 and 230400 and ran it in the simulator. Simulator traces are then visualized with self-made SIMCHART application and are shown on figures 1-3. They appear to be OK. Will they work in silicone? They should, but let us defer this question and consider the receiver routine first.
